A CONSTRUCTION company working for Hampshire County Council has helped set up a memorial bench in Hook.

In advance of Armistice Day celebrations, construction company Skanska has completed a new memorial bench for the village as part of its community contribution.

Located next to the war memorial, just off the A30 coming into Hook, the new Hook Parish Council-funded bench has been set up to mark the anniversary of the First World War.

It will be the centre of attention on November 11, as it is on the route for the parade past the memorial on the way to the remembrance service.
